Happy Saturday everyone! It is the second day of summer and boy, it is starting to feel like it. It was another wonderful day weather wise and a wonderful night is in on the way as well. Tonight, We will experience the "super" full moon which is the moon seen largest and brightest all because it is closest to earth.
Because high pressure remains in control tonight viewing conditions should be superb. Tonight should be mostly clear and "bright: due to the larger than typical full moon. The best viewing time would likely be very early tomorrow morning, right before sunrise. 3-5 AM, the moon will be approaching the horizon where it will be perceived to be even "larger."
High pressure will remain to our east tonight, however; moisture will increase tonight and will provide a few low clouds and/or patchy fog for early morning. The moisture will allow temperatures to stay a bit higher than they were the past couple nights and it can be expected to see lows in the low to mid 60's on the mainland and shore.
With dew points in the upper 60's tomorrow, the summer mugginess will be there. Temperatures will be sitting in the mid 80's on the mainland and mid 70's at the shore. The humidity associated with those temperatures will make it feel much more uncomfortable than the past few days. The high pressure that we have been seeing will continue it's move out into the ocean and as that treads out to sea, winds will be shifting as well from the east to the south, southwest. Monday and Tuesday do seem to be dry. With that being said, there is a bit of instability appearing as the warm humid air takes control and theappearancee of an approaching cold front. We should see that cold front arriving between Monday and Tuesday bringing with it the chance of a few thunderstorms for the end of the work week.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend South Jersey! Remember to "stay cool" and enjoy the summer.
